Mugabe & The White African - New York screening

Mugabe and The White African; an intimate and moving feature-length documentary, charting one family's extraordinary courage in the face of a relentless campaign of state-sanctioned terror.
Directed by Lucy Bailey and Andrew Thompson

WINNER of the SilverDocs documentary film festival's Sterling 'World Feature' Grand Jury Prize
This is the astonishing story of Michael and Angela Campbell and their daughter and son-in-law Laura and Ben Freeth trying to hold onto their farms in Zimbabwe. In fact the Campbells and Freeths are family friends farming right next door to where my brother and my sister-in-law used to farm (and where she grew up) before their farm was taken from them a few years ago.

Here are the screening times in New York for the film in August at IFC Doucweeks.
